When you ask your people to exercise more, they’ll nod their heads and do very little. But when you invite them to take short, low-impact walks that are easy to fit in their days, you get interest. Combine that interest with the motivational support of Live Healthy America’s Step 2 It Challenge, and you get engagement and participation! Your staff or community members will get the health benefits of increased activity, and you’ll have more time to get out from behind your desk, too, because Live Healthy America’s professional implementation and management does it all for you.

The Live Healthy Step 2 It Walking Challenge is how teams and individuals get out from behind their desks and off the couch to participate in effective, low-impact physical activity.
Employees form teams of 2-10 adults to motivate and support each other to get moving. Each team needs to choose one person to be their team captain who will have regular computer and internet access. Through this website, team captains register a team and team members report their progress weekly. This site also provides a daily tracker and message center to help keep team members connected and involved in making health changes to reach their walking goals.
All Live Healthy participants will benefit from the following:
An online daily tracker to help you track your steps
An online messaging center that will allow you to communicate with your teammates to support each other in your progress
Accredited and current information to help you achieve your fitness goals in a healthy manner
Health tools including workout videos, fitness plans, healthy recipes and food log
Weekly motivational e-mail newsletters from Live Healthy containing helpful tips about how to add more steps into your daily routine
If you are already a captain of one team and wish to register another team and act as their team captain, please enter in the Group ID on the homepage and then login as a Returning User in the box at the beginning of the registraiton page.
Registration opens September 16, 2013 so begin gathering team members interested in getting out from behind their desks and up off the couch to get moving!
